Magnus Abe Emerges Rivers SDP Gubernatorial Candidate by eezor: 9:46am On Jul 31, 2022
Barely 24 hours after announcing his membership of the Social Democratic Party, a former chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Magnus Abe, has emerged as the governorship candidate of the SDP in Rivers State for the 2023 elections.

Abe was elected during a primary conducted in Port Harcourt on Saturday and supervised by the Independent National Electoral Commission senior officer, Pastor Emmanuel Isong.

Also at the primary were representatives from the Department of State Services, DSS and the Nigeria Police force was described as the fairest primaries ever held in the state.

Chairman of SDP substitution electoral committee, Alhaji Muhammed Ibrahim, declared Abe winner of the election unopposed, having pulled 30 votes.

The emergence of the former Senator who represented the Rivers South-East Senatorial District in the red chamber of the National Assembly has put paid to speculation as to whether he will make good his promise of being in the ballot.

Ibrahim, while describing Abe as a credible candidate, advised members of the party to go and get their permanent voters cards.

He said, “Today, we have elected a credible candidate for the governorship election in Rivers state. Let me thank all of you for conducting yourselves peacefully and for electing a very popular candidate in the person of distinguished Senator Magnus Abe as the governorship candidate of the party for Rivers state.

“For those of you who are yet to register and collect your PVCs, please ensure that you do so before the expiration of the deadline as slated by INEC.


“I am very confident that with a quality candidate like Senator Magnus Abe, SDP will become the ruling party in Rivers state come 2023.”

In his solidarity message, the former member of the House of Representatives and a chieftain of the SDP in the state, Elder Chidi Wihioka, thanked INEC for its effort in ensuring that elections in Nigeria were free, fair and credible.

Wihioka noted that with what transpired in the Osun state governorship election recently, Nigerians could cast their votes and be confident that such votes would count.

He said, “I was an INEC electoral commissioner some years ago. I can tell you that INEC is doing a good job right now.

“INEC has now given Nigerians a high hope that their votes will count going forward.

Thuggery during elections will now become a thing of the past. With Magnus Abe as the governorship candidate of our great party, SDP, there is no doubt that we will have a nice outing in 2023.”

The state chairman of SDP, Solsuema Osaro, expressed confidence that the candidature of Abe would make SDP a party to beat in the state in 2023.

“I am very confident that with Abe as our candidate, Rivers state belongs to SDP,” he stated.

Meanwhile, Princess Patricia Ogbonna, a retired permanent secretary from the Rivers state civil service was elected as the running mate to Senator Abe.

It's all personal interest...that's the sole reason Politicians are in politics and are in political parties.

It's not about how non-party members feel, not about sentiment, emotions, religions, ethnicity, equality, balance, equity, justice and other moral sentiments non-politicians talks about.

It's all about themselves ONLY..

From Peter Obi, to Ajith, Tinubu, Kwankwaso to Buhari, GEJ, Obasanjo, Babangida, Late Abacha, Late Yar'adua....They are all same.

Once they perceive their personal interest cannot be guaranteed within a political party, they bolt out..it's about time to ship out and join another party they feel their interest can be achieved.

That's politics!

His running contract with Wike FC to scatter APC in Rivers has expired and will not be renewed.

Wike FC has signed a new top striker in Sim Fubara.

Abe has now signed a deal with SDP FC and will compete in the 2023 Champions league with both Amaechi FC and Wike FC.
